Have you ever felt, while installing software, that the installer tries to push additional unwanted programs at all cost? Ever missed a checkbox, and spent hours afterwards removing adware? Ever opened your browser after an installation, only to find out that you have a new homepage, a new search engine, or even a new browser? Unchecky aims to keep potentially unwanted programs out of your computer.

Warns

Installers often try to sneak additional programs as a natural part of the installation. Unchecky warns you when you try to accept a potentially unwanted offer, which makes it less likely to be accepted accidentally.

Updates automatically

Install and forget. Unchecky automatically updates whenever a new version is available, so you don't have to worry about running the latest version.

What's New:

  • Added an option to exclude selected programs, so that they won't be handled by Unchecky.
  • Added an option to create (or not create) a desktop icon during installation.
  • Added support for handling offers in the Microsoft Edge browser, and improved support for Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  • Made Unchecky use a constant path during an update, so that it can be whitelisted in security software such as the Windows Firewall.
  • Added support for DVDStyler.
  • Improved support for GOM Player.
  • Improved support for μTorrent.
  • Improved support for Baixaki Downloader.
  • Improved support for offers which appear in multiple installers (including iFunbox, Cheat Engine, and EaseUS Todo Backup).
  • Removed several false positive detections (WinSCP, Debugging Tools for Windows, MPC-HC, and Reg Organizer).
  • Fixed a compatibility issue with PRO100.
